Ok, this probably isn't a glitch at all - sorry. According to the file dates it looks like the version of AcroRd32.exe currently being used is still the exact same file as for version 9.3.3. A file that -has- been updated is AcroRd32.dll, and this one does carry the current version number, 18.104.22.168. Changing my update checking program to monitor AcroRd32.dll rather than AcroRd32.exe has fixed things up for me.
Its absolutely fine I think.Version of AcroRd32.exe will come as 22.214.171.124.Just check that version of AcroRd32.dll comes as 126.96.36.199
I might have to post this as a separate question, but since it's along the lines of this issue, where does Adobe list the files that are being installed with their programs/updates? I cannot find it anywhere. Not sure if it exists or not, but would like the information for standard configuration management - such as a list of .dll's, .exe's, etc, that are updated with each .msi/.msp/..exe installer files.
I think Adobe does not release any such list which states the files which are updated by the latest msp(9.3.4).
Officially released info about latest security update can be found @
but no file list
Just reporting a little glitch in version 9.3.4, just installed here. When I run the program, "Help; About" says that it's version 9.3.4 as expected. But the version number reported in the properties of AcroRd32.exe is still 188.8.131.52
Agreed. Software compliance scanning systems (like Retina) are scanning to make sure that the exe file was updated from 9.3.3 to 9.3.4. Since the expected file was not updated, it beleives there's still an open vulnerability and flags the system as non-compliant (which in very strict IT/system environments can cause the users computer to be taken off-line until it is remediated).
